Time lapse: All Is Violent, All Is Bright

By Phil Plait | September 30, 2012 7:09 am

For this, the last day of the US Fiscal Year, here’s a lovely time lapse video from Tadas Janušonis, a photographer in Lithuania. It’s called "All is Violent, All is Bright", and features a series of interesting optical phenomena in the sky.

Did you catch everything? There were noctilucent clouds, halos, moondogs, and a brief lunar corona.

But my favorite is the phenomenal oncoming storm starting three minutes in.

That, or the giant spider (at 2:40) clearly bent on destroying the world. I’m partial to stuff like that.
